Inspiration and Creativity - A Writing Workshop

Writing is energizing.  It is a source of renewal.  Yet often we sabotage our desire to write and uncover the stories within us.
How do we unlock the creativity and inspiration that may have lain dormant within us due to the demands on our time and our own quest for perfection? 
When two women in the Circle offered their 1950s-style bungalow backing up to a wooded enclave for a writing workshop, it seemed the perfect place to devote a morning to ourselves before the hectic pace of the holidays.  Together we will ponder those demons that stifle creativity. Am I good enough?  Why would anyone care what I have to say?  Why do I feel guilty spending time to write? We focus on fun and informative ways to tap into our muse and stimulate stories. Join us at Jan and Flo's for inspiration and creativity.
